Abstract

Redundancy is a handicap in association rules. It becomes a limitation to use rules models in order to support the decision-making process. A technique based on user knowledge has been proposed recently, which aims at eliminating redundancy. However, it ignores the imprecise nature of knowledge. In this paper, the notion of knowledge redundancy is generalized and a method to propagate the user certainty over derivate rules is developed. Certainty factor models are used. Obtained results have shown a model reduction of 50% with previous knowledge below 3%. This method improves the efficiency of association rules and the use of discovered association rules.
